MAAREWA MAKES NO GUARANTEE OF VALIDITY

Maarewa is an online open-content collaborative guide, that is, a voluntary association of individuals and groups working to develop a guide to the local food joints of India. The structure of the project allows anyone with an Internet connection to alter its content. Please be advised that nothing found here has necessarily been reviewed by people with the expertise required to provide you with complete, accurate or reliable information.

That is not to say that you will not find valuable and accurate information in maarewa; much of the time you will. However, Maarewa cannot guarantee the validity of the information found here. The content of any given food joint/eatery may recently have been changed, vandalized or altered by someone whose opinion does not correspond with the state of knowledge about the relevant eatery.

No formal peer review

We are working on ways to select and highlight reliable information on the eateries. Our active founders are monitoring the changes to the contents made by people. However, Maarewa is not uniformly peer reviewed; while readers may correct errors or engage in casual peer review, they have no legal duty to do so and thus all information read here is without any implied warranty of fitness for any purpose or use whatsoever. Even content of eateries that have been vetted by informal peer review or featured eateries processes may later have been edited inappropriately, just before you view them.
